I wish for a sign;
to give me a hint
of the smaller steps that must be taken.
In the past few days I have felt my eyes open,
my thoughts become clear and my heart awaken.
Then an explosion of a past trauma
that temporarily clouded my vision...
made me believe in false ideas
and a misinformed interpretation
of the present situation.
 
So after the tears had come and gone,
and I did weep and weep,
I realised I had somewhat lost my way
when my heart had fallen asleep.
And I knew that on this separation a world had been formed
that existed in doubt and fear;
that needed others to confirm
that my existence deserves to be here.
 
Its this world of ego and pretence
that crumbled with the knowledge of its own ignorance.
 
You see, no confirmation is needed from the outside world
when one accepts ones own mind and heart.
And accepts the care thats necessary
to own them willingly.
 
I’ve become aware that a heart without a mind
is like a fully trained pilot that has lost its sight.
And the mind without a heart:
a purposeless dictator with no true knowledge of where to end
or start.
 
So with that knowledge the questions stands,
where do I go from here?
My priorities have shifted hands.
My sight become more clear.
Though I know not the small steps that must be taken
and for that I ask advice.
Inspire my heart with the right ideas.
Lead me to the right information, and widen further my eyes.
